PIANO ENDS HERE
The Royal Room
5000 Rainier Ave South
Seattle, WA 98118
In celebration of the major overhaul of the Royal Room Steinway B, and its tentative absence while its is undergoing repairs, The Royal Room presents “Piano Ends Here” on Monday, August 15th. Using a bizarre and very out of tune piano, the evening will be a preview of composer Wayne Horvitz “21 Pianos”, which will mostly take place in the state of Minnesota during the months of September-November. In this incarnation, local Seattle pianists, past luminaries of the Piano Starts Here series, will each perform a piece of standard repertoire, of their choosing, and an improvisation.
The evening’s pianists will include: Ryan Burns, Robin Holcomb, Alex Guilbert, Dawn Clement, Tim Kennedy, Wayne Horvitz and Josh Rawlings

The newly refurbished Steinway B will return in late August and in plenty of time for “Piano Starts Here: Alice Coltrane and Lil’ Hardin” on Wednesday, September 21st.
